Hi, I'm Matthew Cousins

Hi, I'm Stephen Bushell

I have been working in Estate Agency since Maggie Thatcher left Downing Street and when the World Wide Web was invented (1989/1990). The challenge and passion for helping people in one of what can be the most stressful times of their lives, is what I love about doing the job and every day is different. After 25/30 years of corporate agency I wanted to work for a company that was not so focused on market share and KPI’s. I love one summer and one skiing holiday a year and have recently found a passion for woodworking and creations, as well as an addiction to Freecycle. I am a fan of  Charlton Athletic so have the joy of not being disappointed, as I have no expectations.

Facts about me

  • My curly hair is all my own and NOT a perm
  • I am one of the taller agents you’ll meet
  • My garage is full of stuff I will ‘eventually’ upcycle
  • I have both bungee jumped and tandem sky dived (just the once though!)

  • I crossed the Europe in a car with my cat

Hi, I'm Keira Joyce

Since a young age I've been passionate about horse riding, spending countless hours perfecting my skills and enjoying the freedom it brings. I love socializing with my friends, whether we're out on the town or just catching up over coffee. My trusty Fiat 500 is my constant companion, zipping me from one adventure to the next. On nights out, I'm known for my playful antics, often rolling around on the floor in fits of laughter, which has become a bit of a signature move among my friends. At 5 foot 2, I'm the second smallest in our office, but my bubbly personality more than makes up for my petite stature.

Facts about me

  • I have 3 horses and keep them at my mums house
  • My signature dish is a pot noodle
  • I have done a bricklaying course
  • I love getting my nails done
  • Going on holidays is my favourite thing to do
